Waffle Crush Wednesday: Cafe Ghia
There are some kinds of waffles you just can’t find in Manhattan. So this week’s Waffle Crush Wednesday led us to Brooklyn, where we chowed down at the brunch-only joint, Cafe Ghia.
With its long wooden tables and potted cacti, the sunlit spot embodies the very essence of hip and graffiti’d Bushwick. Despite it being 11am on a Wednesday, there were plenty of brunchers — some sipping coffee and the more adventure chugging down Bloody Marys.
It didn’t take long to decide what to order, as the menu boasts not one waffle option… but two.
First, we devoured the Lumberjack Stack, a beautiful and hearty creation consisting of scrambled eggs and bacon stuffed between two golden waffles. It was the ultimate waffle sandwich, made even more perfect by drowning it in a generous pouring of Vermont maple syrup.
Next came a classic. A plain Belgian waffle dressed up with fresh berries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. It was pretty, poised, and almost too picturesque to eat. Almost. Each bite was was just fluffy enough to soak up every drop of syrup. And we poured a lot.
The best part of the meal? Bottomless coffee. We left feeling hyper, happy, and definitely not hungry.
